Why don't we have flying cars, jet packs, and robot personal assistants? Honestly.

The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics will not only tell you why--it will EXPLAIN why--and all without using math!

Covering the key concepts of quantum mechanics, learn how these ideas account for the properties of metals, insulators, and semiconductors as well as how the wonders of quantum mechanics are put to use in the world around us...and where the technology is going in the next fifty years. 316 pages, softcover.
